Directions

  1. Toast the sesame and sunflower seeds in a dry, heavy skillet over medium heat until light brown and fragrant. Sesame seeds should crumble easily when rubbed between your fingers.
  2. Heat honey and peanut butter in a saucepan over low heat until warm; stir in the toasted seeds and flax seeds. Line an 11 x 7 inch dish with plastic wrap. Press the mixture into the bottom of the lined dish; allow to cool completely. Cut into 2-inch squares to serve.

Loved it! I used a 9x9 pan, and it was perfect for me. I got 16 bars out of it. Hubby and I ate them ALL that evening. They were so good and so much more healthy, fast, and filling than cookies. I added about 2 T of chia seeds. Totally going to do it again. I can't wait to add variations as the other reviewers have mention. These will be a great hit with the family!

This recipe is awesome! I followed the ingredients exactly as written, however I put it into a slightly smaller pan which I'm glad I did. You don't really taste the peanut butter alot - as my PB hating daughter can attest. Will be adding this to my recipe book. Might try adding in some pumpkin seeds too.

I added a tsp of vanilla and a tbsp cinnamon. I thought that it made the peanut butter mixture so so yummy. However, only 4 stars because I definitely didn't get 20 bars, and the pan size was way too big.
